Floral Birthday Greetings

Say It Words

 Today I am excited to share this bright and cheery  birthday card.   I just loved the combination of the Pomegranate and the Margarita Lime inks together with the Totally Tracy Say it with Words Stamp Set!  To create this card, Stamp the  flower repeatedly with Dare 2B Artzy Pomegranate Ink onto white cardstock.  Stamp swirl with Dare 2B Artzy   Margarita Lime Ink.  Mat onto red cardstock and attach to card base. Add cardstock strip to card as shown. Stamp greeting from Dare 2B Artzy You've Got Mail Stamp Set and cut into banner.  Attach to card. Stamp one extra flower onto cardstock and fussy cut. Attach to card. Here is a close up of the card.
Hope you are inspired to get stamping!

Sunny Daisy Greetings



Today I am super excited to share this cheery card I create with Dare 2 B Artzy's New Totally Tracy Find Your Purpose stamp set! 

 I started by stamping the flower image from this stamp set several times onto white cardstock filling my background piece. I then lightly outlined the flowers with Specturm Noir IB1 marker.  
 The little pop of color added so much to the flowers! I then colored the flower centers with my Y15 Copic marker and added accents with my Spectrum Noir GB8 marker!

  I matted the flower background onto black cardstock. I stamped my greeting from the Blissful Blossoms Stamp set and matted it on black cardstock.  I added a Sunshine Artzy Doodle banner and a coordinating bow to finish off the card! Hope you are inspired to get stamping!!!

May your Coffee be strong and your Mondays short!


 Greetings!  Today I am sharing this coffee card with you! This card was created for this month's Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers. To re-create this card start by cutting my Flower Power paper slightly smaller than my card base.  Add a large cardstock block across the center of my card. Stamp the coffee cup and greeting from the Dare 2B Artzy Perfect Blend Stamps set onto white cardstock. ( I originally stamped the steam, but my card went off in another direction and the steam did not get used. )
 Cut the greeting into a banner shape.  Color the coffee cup with your favorite markers. I chose Spectrum Noir markers in TN 2, TN 3, and IB 1. Stamp cup wrap with coordinating greeting from the stamp set. Fussy cut your colored coffee mug.

 Add your cup and banner greeting to the card base.  Accent cardstock with doodled stitches.  Hope you are inspired to get stamping and play along with the Blog Hop at Coffee Loving Card Makers.
